Paraguay opened its Israel embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, the second country to follow the United States in making the politically sensitive move from Tel Aviv. Paraguayan President Horacio Cartes and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the inauguration ceremony.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who met Cartes at Ben-Gurion International Airport, said the opening of Paraguay’s embassy in Jerusalem “is an important step.”

“Recognition of Jerusalem represents a change in the global political map: More and more countries support our positions and want to strengthen relations with us. In recent years, Paraguay has proved through a series of courageous decisions that it is a true friend,” Erdan said.

He thanked Cartes for his support and leadership.

PLO Executive Committee member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi called on Paraguay to reverse its decision.

“Paraguay has conspired with Israel, the United States and Guatemala to entrench the military occupation and to seal the fate of occupied Jerusalem,” Ashrawi said. “We call on Paraguayan President Horacio Cartes to retract his decision and take the necessary steps to hold Israel accountable for its flagrant violations of human rights and crimes against humanity.”

The United States was the first country to move its embassy to Jerusalem last week. The move was celebrated in an inauguration ceremony in Jerusalem attended by a delegation from Washington. Many Arab nations and other world leaders denounced the controversial decision.
